"I'm a vegetarian, and pizza is one of my favorite foods. I make my own: I whip up a recipe that's half whole-wheat and half regular crust and load it with vegetables and part-skim mozzarella. I cut myself a good-size slice after baking it."
-- Kathy McManus, R.D., director of the department of nutrition at Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston
